    March 7th was my 15th wedding anniversary, so of course I was looking at some pictures I have in a frame at home (wondering where the years went! Sheesh!). Anyway, I was laughing at myself for choosing the type of dress I did. It's got puffy sleeves, and the typical gathered-at-the-waist skirtie-thing going on. Girlie. Blech.

    Nowadays..I love the streamline A-lined look, w/ no frills. Just classy looking. Nothing puffy or foo-foo. Simple. Almost like a form-fitting evening dress. I just think that looks soooo sophisticated and classy.

    Kinda like looking back at the clothes you wore in highschool, I suppose. What was I thinking? LOL!

    How about you? Do you still like the wedding dress you wore? Or are you wondering: "what was I thinking"? LOL!

    Well I have only been married 4.5 years so my wedding dress hasn't had a lot of time to go out of style. I still like it. It is ivory with a princess waist. I have hips so no fitted dress for me. lol Is has short sleeves that are sort of off the shoulder, but not streetwalker off the shoulder. lol The bodice is tight, the skirt is full and it has a smallish train. The bodice is heavily beaded and the skirt part has a lot of beading as well.

    So yes, I still like it. I just wish I could still fit into it.

    I didn't wear a dress. I wore a women's tuxedo. It had sheer sleeves and was simple and elegant. I would choose it again, but Gabe and I have only been married four years. *L*

    Ahhh jclark! That's so sweet!

    And I wish I had worn my hair different too. Up and classy~

    Has anyone seen the commercial where the guy rents the entire movie theatre..to surprise his wife (on their anniversary) with the film of their marriage? Now THAT'S a classy bride!! I just love her "bridal" look..hair, dress, everything. (of course, I'm sure it doesn't hurt that she's drop-dead gorgeous to start with! LOL!)

    Yes and No. It's been 19 years on April 16 so styles have definitely changed. I still like it, but probably wouldn't pick it again for right now. I guess that's the difference between 20 years old, and 39 years old lol.

    I love my wedding dress. Our wedding was in our home so the dress wasn't so formal. It was tea length and simple except for a few lacy doo-dads that framed the "V" in the back. I love it mostly though because my Mom made it for me.

    That's my dress! And I still love it. This June will make six years of marriage for us.

    I can remember one dress I tried on that I thought was really pretty - it was a evening dress type of dress, but it was covered from top to bottom in sequins and pearls and such. That thing weighed a ton!!!!!!!
